The Reel History of Britain

one comment

The BFI and BBC have teamed up to screen a series of archive films about British life.

Exploring life in this country during the 20th century, it covers subjects such as rural life in the 1930s, evacuation during World War II, teenagers in the 1950s, the NHS and package holidays in the 1960s.

A series of programmes hosted by Melvyn Bragg screens every weekday on BBC2 at 6:30pm and are also available via BBC iPlayer.

On the BFI website you can watch over one hundred films used in the series and find out more about the people who made them.

The videos aren’t embeddable, but you can watch them on the dedicated site.
